How much does Precious Achiuwa Earn? Net Worth

Some online sources claim Precious Achiuwa has a net worth of $6 million, but this appears to be false.

To clarify, the individual is in his third season in the NBA and has not yet signed a significant long-term contract with the franchise.

Given his outstanding performance this season, he may have struck it rich after signing his rookie contract, but claiming a net worth of $6 million without any credible sources is speculative at this time.

However, this may make sense in light of his endorsement arrangements.

In April 2021, Achiuwa signed a multi-year shoe contract with Anta, joining Klay Thompson and Gordon Hayward.

Since none of the parties disclosed the precise financial arrangements, it is unknown how much this transaction contributed to his wealth.

Endorsement

Precious Achiuwa committed to a four-year, $12.51 million rookie contract with the Miami Heat in November 2020.

According to the contract terms, he is entitled to the whole sum guaranteed, with annual compensation of $3.12 million.

The Raptors exercised a $2.84 million option for the 2022-23 season in October 2021. The next year, the organization activated a $4.38 million option for the 2023-24 season.

However, Precious will be eligible for a rookie extension following the 2022-23 season, which could be worth $195 million with an average annual salary of $33.63 million.

After one season with the Heat, Achiuwa was traded to the Raptors in exchange for point guard Kyle Lowry in a sign-and-trade transaction.

Against the Washington Wizards on October 20, 2021, Achiuwa made his season debut for the Raptors, tallying six points, two assists, and seven rebounds in 19 minutes of action.

Despite an early-season setback, he has improved his game and established himself as a vital member of the Raptors’ squad.

His field goal percentage is 57%, and his three-point percentage is 40%.

Achiuwa’s only flaw was that he played with too much energy, but it appears he has altered his playing approach.
